I began teaching in 1984 at the high school in Elberton. After one year, I made the transition to Elbert County Middle School and remained there in seventh grade Language Arts for 28 years. I am also a mentor and substitute teacher at Mountain Ed. Charter School in Bowman, GA.


I am from Elberton, GA.

I have been married for 32 years to Dennis Blackmon, and we have three children: Hunter is 24 and a policeman in Clarke County, Paige is a rising junior studying nursing at Athens Tech, and Mia is 14, and in the ninth grade.I am an avid animal lover. I have four dogs and a cat. I also love to read and scrapbook in my spare time.

I have one sister and one brother. All three of us are teachers, and our mother was a parapro in Elbert County for many years.
